Written by accountants, for accountants (but not for students), December 11, 2012




I have to agree with a lot of the other reviews. There are various issues with this textbook that will leave you with a severe dislike of managerial accounting and a less than stellar grade. To preface my review, I used this textbook during the Fall 2012 semester for an independent study online course in my MBA program.

1. Each chapter is too concise. The concepts are often explained in the language of accountants and you'll only get one example of (or one way to view) a particular concept.
2. The end of chapter homework does not include an answer key or explanations. Your only way to really practice the concepts is by using the online access component, which is shoddily designed and also not helpful. Believe it or not, a lot of students prefer to work with a paper, pencil, and calculator.
3. The online access component consists of three parts: practice homework, regular homework, and quizzes. The problem I frequently encountered was that you would work through the practice homework and feel fairly confident about your understanding of the chapter, but then the regular homework would completely blindside you and have no similarities to the practice homework. The quizzes were a toss-up as to whether they related to the homework concepts.
4. There seemed to be a lot of errors in the online component where none of the answers to a question were correct. From what my professor told the class, this was due to a mix-up between the 15th and 16th edition answer keys.

I know that some of these are typical student complaints, and I'm one of those people who does not "get" accounting, but in an independent study course, the book is all I really have to learn the subject matter. To be a good reviewer, I have some suggestions in case the authors are reading this review:

1. Please be consistent in your terminology when explaining concepts in each chapter. For example, if you use the term "earnings", please continually use that term throughout the rest of the chapter instead of switching to "profits". This is a really base example, but not all of us are professional business jargon speakers. Studying should be about learning the concepts, not developing a mental thesaurus of the various terms that describe cost of goods sold.
2. If you must use the online component, please check for consistency between the practice homework, regular homework, and quizzes. The presentation of problems and concepts tested should ideally be presented in a similar manner between the three, with the difference being in level of difficulty.
3. Give us back the end of chapter homework! Unless, of course, the end goal is to gain another for a poorly executed online access component?

This review is from: Schaum's Outline of Cost Accounting, 3rd, Including 185 Solved Problems (Paperback)


If you're an accounting major and having trouble with those other textbooks on Cost Accounting, this book is a great addition to your library. It explains the theories and works the problems in simple text. I had no problem adding this to help me with my cost accounting course.

Used it in college, now using it for the CPA., December 11, 2012

This review is from: Schaum's Outline of Cost Accounting, 3rd, Including 185 Solved Problems (Paperback)


I purchased this a few years ago when taking cost accounting in school and now as I prepare for the CPA I must say, this guide is still a fantastic companion. This subject can get pretty crazy considering there is tons of theory, costing methods, classifications, analysis etc... This outline cuts straight through the fluff.

In short, each of the chapters are presented as follows a) brief explanation of the concept (typically a few paragraphs and bullet points) b) example/s of the concept c) various problems d) solutions.

Good Book, even after so many years, January 2, 2010



This review is from: Schaum's Outline of Cost Accounting, 3rd, Including 185 Solved Problems (Paperback)


This is excellent book in the past, and if I considered it's usefulness today, it is still a very good book. You will be amazed it is still very relevant. What is missing are activity based costing, target costing and just-in-time accounting, with the last only explained in brief. It does not cover concepts of balanced scorecard or the like which is performance management and is only popular after this book is published. It is good supplement to any cost management or accounting textbooks because this provide the solutions to the questions, whereas textbooks don't. It helps those studying for financial accounting as well with the journal entry examples.

Cluttered and Distracting, November 30, 2010



This review is from: Financial Accounting (Hardcover)


The book does cover the basics of financial accounting, so in terms of written/educational content, it's o.k.

However, the layout of the book is absolutely horrible. With no exaggeration, there is simply WAY TOO MUCH going on in each page. All the colors, artwork, and cartoony figures makes for a circus of a text. It's very distracting. Also, the way in which tables/balance sheets/spreadsheets are presented is equally distracting and confusing. I've peeked my nose in other financial accounting textbooks at the bookstore and found them much more straightforward and easy to read. Unfortunately, I had to use this one for a class.
